Facebook has done it again; it went on removing and blocking pro-Palestinian posts and accounts. But this time, the app faced a huge jerk.
According to The Verge, in response to Facebook’s cruel actions, a social media campaign by pro-Palestine activists pushed down Facebook’s rating to 2.4 stars on the Google Play store. Something similar happened on Apple’s App Store.
Reviewing the situation, one engineer wrote in a post on an internal Facebook message board that “users are upset with our handling of the situation,” adding that the users “have started protesting by leaving 1-star reviews.”
After this reaction from pro-Palestine activists, Facebook reached Apple to remove the anti-facebook reviews. However, Apple has declined this request. It’s not clear how Google responded to the request.
It has been a long time since I joined Research Snipers. Though I have been working as a part-time tech-news writer, it feels good to be part of the team. Besides that, I am building a finance-based blog, working as a freelance content writer/blogger, and a video editor.
